How best to marginalize an already dwindling conspiracy movement and raise some campaign cash at the same time?

President Obama's re-election campaign has at least one answer. For a campaign donation of at least $25, it's offering a limited edition t-shirt that pokes fun at the birther controversy.

On the front, the shirt has an image of Obama flashing his trademark smile over the words "Made in the USA." And on the back of the t-shirt, an image of the president's long-form birth certificate.
